Legal marijuana substitute causes unease

Legal marijuana substitute causes unease

So-called legal highs that mimic the effects of cannabis are being discussed by the Government’s drug advisers and could be banned in the UK. A Sky News undercover investigation has looked at the synthetic cannabis trade. “You smoke it. You know, it makes you f****d up,” explained the vendor on Camden High Street while waving a shiny package. He could have been selling marijuana. It certainly sounded like it. But he wasn’t. He was selling “spice”, a synthetic cannabinoid that mimics the effects of marijuana almost exactly and is 100% legal in Britain. It sounds innocuous enough, but experts say it packs a dangerous punch bigger than its three-gram packages suggest.
